While there are a lot of stars in Hollywood who get into the acting game at a very young age and slowly build up their impressive acting resume, there are also those who come into acting at a later age but have a natural talent for it. Just take a look at the legendary Hollywood actor Gene Hackman, for example.

There are some of you that might not be aware of Gene Hackman's rise to Hollywood stardom but the great man did not get into acting until later in life. In his early years, Gene Hackman worked a number of odd jobs, such as being a radio operator in the Marine Corps., and when he moved to New York, it was actually to follow his radio career.
 
While in New York though, Gene Hackman landed a number of roles on Broadway and it was not long before he hit the big screen. Gene Hackman did not really get into the acting game until the age of 37 and he announced his arrival as a true acting talent in the 1967 movie Bonnie and Clyde, before going on to put in some brilliant performances in some fantastic movies over the years.

It was obvious from the start that Gene Hackman was a natural to the acting game and he has landed five Oscar nominations in his career, bagging two Academy Awards along the way. His first win came in 1971 when he won the Best Actor in a Leading Role Oscar for his performance in The French Connection. The next win was in 1992 winning the Best Actor in a Supporting Role award for the movie Unforgiven.
 
Despite arriving late to the acting game, Gene Hackman will always be remembered as a Hollywood great.
